Network Status Monitor Plug-in - What is it?
This has been deprecated...
You can help Azureus (Vuze) gather data on Internet traffic throttling!
This small plug-in works with your Azureus (Vuze) application to gather information regarding potential interference with your Internet access. Specifically, it monitors your network connections and every ten minutes measures how many of them have been interrupted (called reset tcp connections). By selecting the share results check-box you can also share these results with our central server; this allows us to aggregate the results and compare them with customers of other ISPs. We strongly encourage you to enable the share results setting.
Sharing this data does not disclose any personally identifiable information about you. Azureus (Vuze) may aggregate the data collected and talk about it or disclose it publicly, but no data about any specific user will be gathered or disclosed. Use of this plug-in has a negligible impact on your network usage.
Users from all countries are welcome to participate, although the current version of the plug-in only works on Windows PCs.
Thank you for your cooperation in this research. We hope that contributing more complete factual data to the debate over appropriate network management will lead to better regulatory solutions. For more info about controversial network management practices, see this wiki page, this article and some of the blog entries here.
